Beautiful day

I’m not going to lie: today started off a little rough.  My wife and I had stayed up well into the early morning hours last night, talking about this and that (mostly related to her graduate program), and so I’ve learned that 6 hours of interrupted sleep is not sufficient for me to be a functioning human being, at least until I’ve had some coffee.

Said coffee was purchased at Otherlands, where I like to spend my Fridays working away from the office.  Even the barrista on duty recognized that I was still half asleep when I rolled in around 10:30 this morning.  But a few cups of coffee and a wheat bagel with piles of hummus soon set me right.

After spending most of the day working at Otherlands, I biked home to drop off some stuff and then head out to run a few errands.  The first stop was the quickie mart on Cooper for a few toiletries.  It was also there that I forgot to restart the GPS app on my iPhone, so the map of my ride today is a little incomplete.  Here it is.

After biking to the package store on Union for a bottle of vino, I headed home.  It’s been a really busy week here at Biking in Memphis and I was happy to have such nice weather today.  A bit warm but not at all unbearable.  My wife and I spent the evening having dinner and then watching “The American,” which was actually not too shabby.  We are soon headed to bed.

Don’t forget that tomorrow morning is the Rock and Roll Revolution Bike Ride.  Hope to see you there.
